You do a very neat job packing that wood in. Do you get it already cut or do you also do the wood chopping? 7 cords is a lot.
We go to the bush with the bugs cut it throw it into an truck bring it home a split it then pile it for a year +++
Lots of work but the wood is free+++
We used to have one side in the basement with a pile of wood and two or three (can't remember for sure) rows deep. My first hubby and his brothers and cousin would get together and go cut down trees (had to have permits and given specific areas to go) and cut them up into logs the right size for the wood stove. We had electric heat and supplemented it with the wood. It smelled so good and was a much evener heat. I miss it.
Yes thats what we do the same ++hugs
My goodness Carolyn, what a lot of effort to transport it into the house. How are your muscles the next day? I'm glad you can keep warm with those temperatures. Cannot fathom how cold it must be, we never get those temps down under! Love Chris
No problem i am in shape even if i look porky lol
I can just see all the work involved. What do poor widow women with no help do?. I trust the neighborhood helps them.
yes they do we help or sale for half price or whatever they can afford but most use oil and are on equal billing per month per year+++
Boy what a job. You will be able to keep nice and warm now that is done. Hugs
yep always 75 in the house and - outside
Wow! Good job. Bet you'll have some sore muscles tomorrow. We used to have a wood stove. My hubby still misses it 12 years later. It was not our total heat source, or got as cold as your winters, so never needed that much wood! :0)
Even today we call it nice but it is -14 to -20
Gosh what a lot of work you two did to restock. I am guessing when the weather turns nice again then you have to gather wood and restock the outside shed again ready for next winter.
we have 2 years of wood in our shed but every year we restock for sure hugs
Brings back memories. My brother heats his house using pellets for his stove.
Wow, that's a lot of wood...and a lot of work...but well worth the effort to keep you both warm and toasty!
Yep there is no heat like wood heat
